Are you planning a visit to Thailand for vacation this summer? If so, I have some bad news for you. You’re going to have to cancel…unless you want to deal with the possibility of a giant python swimming up through the plumbing and biting you in the privates, that is.
That sounds oddly specific, but let me assure you that this is definitely something you should fear. Why? Just ask this guy.
It sounds like a headline from “The Onion,” but this actually happened to 38-year-old Thailand native Attaporn Boonmakchuay last week.

According to the unlucky man, he was using his toilet when a 10-foot python slithered through the plumbing and latched onto his penis.

After a 30-minute ordeal, Boonmakchuay was finally able to get the python off of himself with the help of his wife before passing out.

Officials removed the snake from the plumbing successfully, and they plan to release it back into the wild at an undisclosed location.

As for the victim, doctors say that he’s in good spirits and is expected to make a full recovery. If this were to happen to you, things might not end on such a pleasant note.
